Morrow & Sheppard LLP recently won a $602,500 settlement for our client who was injured in a wreck involving a work commercial vehicle. At the time of the car wreck, our client was not wearing a seatbelt. She sustained a neck injury.
The defendant denied responsibility. The defendant claimed our client’s injuries were caused by a prior wreck, preexisting medical conditions, and our client’s failure to wear a seatbelt at the time of the car wreck.
Our work injury attorneys refused to take no for an answer. We worked hard to prove that the prior wreck was unrelated, and that a seatbelt would not have prevented our client’s whiplash neck injury.
Less than a month before trial, the defendant gave up, and paid $602,500 to settle the case. Attorneys’ fees and expenses were $270,000.
